The UPS Worldport in Louisville, Ky., is the center of the company's international shipping operations. It's the size of 90 football fields, sorts 350,000 packages an hour and contributes 20,000 jobs to the local economy. We took a peek inside their busiest shift: 11p.m. to 3a.m. a week before Christmas.

UPS TOO MUCH SERVICE ....)))) I bought in USA an item for $150 can. and have to pay $80 service and custom fees. Very expensive given the price of the item. From now on, I won't use UPS.

My brother works feeder at UPS Grande Vista in Los Angeles. 10 years ago when my dad had dementia, my brother and his wife had my dad sign over all of his properties to themselves. My kids and I are about to become homeless because my brother and his wife took out a $350,000 loan on this house and never paid it back. My father bought this home in 1957 and this home was intended to be sold after his death and the funds distributed to my sister and brothers, and myself. New owner says that we have until June 6, 2019, to get out.

Staged, apply for a job there and quit afterwards just to take a tour and you'll see all kinds of throwing, kicking and yelling. Vote with your wallet, they DONT GIVE A CRAP about your package, you're just another number like the employees

Forgot.. You work for two minorities if you are white and load trucks, because they are slowwwww so UPS bosses use you'Whitey's as they just pretend they working but they slack off etc, I'm no racist it's vice versa.. Worked with all people everywhere and didn't had that pretty much problem. But UPS heyyy you are majority so you are 'privledged' as they say, work for 3 people be used as a tool.

After FedEx kept losing the same package I ordered 5 times, I have up on them. It was a leap frog learning tablet and some games I bought of Amazon. Costed almost $600.00. Fortunately I only had to pay for it one time. Fedex kept refunding it everytime it got 'lost'.

I got fed up with UPS bullshit so I applied for a job there to see, what actually happens behind the close door. OMG! Well... folks... these people don't care about your packages. Most of my time, I have to move around fast but most of packages that I handle were Television, Monitors, Computers, Labtops, and anything that value. I have to move fast but also be careful I don't want to smash them but I got fired because I wasn't throwing the boxes like everyone else were doing. Motherfuka.... you want me to throw something like computers and monitors?!?! That's stupid..., no wonder when I bought a monitor from online and when UPS faggots brought it my house, it was all smashed. Now on, I only choose FedEx or Canada Post. At least, these guys do their job.
